Change is inevitable and constant, yet does ebb and flow. Right now my life is in "flow" mode, and as my husband and I prepare to pack up and move to London, I find myself editing my life and possessions...yet again.

The truth is, I love editing my things. Whatever the opposite of a hoarder is, that's me. I am seriously looking forward to giving away our sofa, selling our armoire, and packing up only the necessities for storage. Moving forces me to open drawers and rummage through boxes packed away and forgotten. I find it invigorating to throw away dusty knick-knacks that I never needed to begin with. For me, editing is a necessary step in change...out with the old, in with the new and (hopefully) more fabulous! By creating space in your life, you clear the path for the next opportunity and open up a world of possibility.

One of my favorite quotes is from William Morris, a 19th century textile designer and artist, which states that you should own nothing that is not useful nor beautiful. I chose to dub my blog "Interior Editor" for this reason. As we go through life, we acquire "stuff". It takes conscious effort to edit these possessions down to only that which is useful and/or beautiful. I hope to use this blog as a spring board for this conversation.

"Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful."
- William Morris
